Common Questions and Answers about How long does neurontin withdrawal last


Avatar f tn Looking for people's experiences with Neurontin 1) in general and 2) specifically if its helpful for withdrawal. The poll is for people's experiences using Neurontin during withdrawal - not necessarily FOR withdrawal but just if you used during. lso let me know if you feel like it, what it actually helped with. If you have other experiences with it, please comment on this post and let me know. I was prescribed it weeks ago for facial pain, but I havent filled it.
9704730 tn?1405744884 My doctor put me on neurontin but I think I am now having withdrawal symptoms from neurontin. I have been taking about 900 mg a day since September. It gives me a lot of side effects such as drowsiness and the inability to think quickly. I wanted to know if it is possible that I am still in withdrawal from the tramadol or if it's the neurontin.
Avatar n tn How many people on this site have been put on neurontin for pain issues, etc? I have done reading on the side effects, withdrawals from this drug and it is scary. I have a whole *hitload of this stuff and have not touched it. Why are we becoming the guinea pigs for many of these drugs that have been on the market for a short time? I just would like some feedback.
Avatar m tn How long does Effexor XR withdrawal last? I understand the time frame will be different for everyone, but I'm assuming there is a general window that most people fall into? A few weeks? Months?? Some background: I've only been on anti-depressants for four months. I was first put on Zoloft while I was inpatient for an eating disorder, but it didn't seem to do anything. Two months ago I was switched to Effexor 150mg/day, as well as Neurontin 900mg/day.
Avatar n tn Stopping Neurontin does NOT *cause* seizures if you don't already have them. Now, it turns out that Neurontin is not a very good anti-seizure medication. People with epilepsy do not take it. But it *has* been found to reduce neuropathic pain in some people. So doctors go ahead and use it for that-- and why not? It is excreted through the urine, so there is no problem with buildup in the liver. That alone places it head and shoulders above many other medications.
3119293 tn?1342054132 First, can someone point to a reliable web site where they list the symptoms? Second, how long I can expect this general lousy feeling last? And last, how long will it take to get back to a feeling where I want to do more than just lay around all day? Thank you all in advance for answering my questions.
Avatar f tn I wasn't planning on being on it for too long, but I am amazed at how much easier the withdrawals are this time, then the last time. (Yeah I relapsed, sorry) But I dusted myself off and started again.
Avatar f tn Taking 10 30mg per day for 2 months, 6-7 30mg for two months,prior to that using 5-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. Can anyone estimate how long the major withdrawals will last if I go cold turkey? I am so terrified but have GOT to do this now. I have Clonodine, Clonazepam, Ambien, Neurontin and Lyrica to help me through. I am scared I will die. I've heard anywhere from 5days of hell to a whole month. Can anyone who's been on a similar dose help me with an estimate? grateful to hear from anyone.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar n tn for any CII script filled, so the most you could fill at one time was 100 tablets, capsules, patches, etc., but no restriction on how long that had to last - you could fill one every day if the situation required it. The question of upper dose is nearly always up to the judgement of the prescriber. There are often administrative limits by insurance or whoever is paying (e.g., Medicare), though those most often are aimed at controlling costs more than they are concerned with therapeutic value.
Avatar f tn Had 8 yrs of fentanyl 4 micrograms and dilaudid 2mg pumped in me for MV acct. QUESTION is how long will the withdrawal be? I'm on day 8 and only 20 hrs of sleep. With the worst case of RLS ever. Don't crave the drugs, but the racing thoughts r making me delirious. When does it get better. Snots, squirts and vomiting. Went on for 6 days. Liquid N-Quel works wonders also Amodium AD. Godsend. Need some sleep the creepy crawlies gone and racing thoughts to disappeare, before I go crazy.
Avatar f tn I have been on Percocet for 10 years and then was taking Ultram to not have withdrawal but after reading all the horror stories on here about Ultram, I tried the Neurontin. I have been on it for 3 days and no withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. I am shocked. I heard it is not addictive either so I'm staying on it for a week or two and then stopping to see if the Perc are out of my system.
Avatar f tn FYI......Google neurontin & withdrawal.......I have read horror stories. i dont know how real they are as most seem to be posted around the time of the I have taken it for a while and stopped with no withdrawal, although i haven't taken it but for a couple months lately. I love it ! I won't go back to opiates, so I have no choice. Nauty.........
Avatar n tn How long you feel bad and how bad you feel will likely depend on your level of use prior to quitting. If you went from your highest use to zero it will be worse and longer than if you tapered down to minimal use. Even if it's bad, you should only feel like pure hell for 3 or 4 days and that's really no more than a bad case of the flu. For me, the worst part was the Restless Leg Syndrome (aka RLS) and the general feeling of wanting to crawl out of your skin.
1474625 tn?1371100679 I can deal with all the other symptoms such as chills and sweats, but it’s always the restlessness that gets me. Does anyone have any advice on how to use the Neurontin to help with this to my best advantage?
Avatar n tn How people can give advice on how to get off of opiates when they cannot get off themselves. It just doesn't make since! I do not care how long you been on opiates. How can anyone take you serious, when the system did not work for you?
1474625 tn?1371100679 I'm not sure if this is why I haven't felt w/d yet. Does anyone know what the dose of neurontin should be and or how long should I take? I have about 15 days worth of neurontin using the doses I mentioned. Thank you all for your help and good luck!
Avatar n tn That was last year Feb. 27th, so I've been clean from the methadone for over a year. I think it's awful how these Dr.'s will generously prescribe opiates of this magnitude (i.e. the severity of addiction) then look at you blindly when you're hooked and say they don't know how to help you! That's just insane.
Avatar m tn My doctor gave me diazipam for help but I have had to increase this medication as needed. No more than 5mg at a time but how long does this withdrawal last. Shouldn't I be getting some results? I get some sleep but last night my legs were doing a dance on me I could not control. That was rough but of course I made it through with the help of the diazipam. When will there be light at the end of the tunnel. I know there has got to be and July 12 will be a month off the fentanyl.
Avatar n tn I hate these withdrawls and I feel like maybe I shouldn't have gone cold turkey so I keep telling myself that maybe I should get these pills and try to come off of them slowly. Does anyone know how long these withdrawls will last? Any advice? PLEASE!! Thanks!
Avatar f tn Thanks everyone! The Neurontin really does work. I'm on my last week of a slow taper. I'm down to having a quarter of a 325mg Norco 2-3 times a day. I feel great. I take the Neurontin before bed and I don't wake up feeling like I need to take a pill. I am, however, worried about my upcoming back surgery because I'd have to be back on the painkillers at least for a few weeks post-op.
Avatar f tn Altho your conditions have snowballed so badly that a systemic disease is probably at work in you. Finally, for all, not everyone does well with Neurontin or its cousins, and yet it is indeed prescribed and successfully for all sorts of discomfort, sensitivities, anything to do with nerve pain. So, since not all meds work for all conditions, if it doesn't work for you or you are suspicious of it, then ask for something else. For me, it is a miracle drug...
559187 tn?1330786456 But I'd still love to hear what others think about neurontin. How long have you been on Lyrica? Thanks again so very much!!!!
1283286 tn?1312915566 i am in the process of neurontin withdrawal right now...and its not fun. i am 72 hours free. no sleep @ all day 1 and thats with taking tremazapam. granted i went ct against my dr wishes but it was giving me twitches. i was 600mg x 4 day just over 3 months. i feel better today but i am worried about sleeping tonight. it's also causing me to have some anxiety. never had it before. from all i have read this really works for some ppl.
9704730 tn?1405744884 ) You will feel like a yo-yo with your emotions and energy for a while. Depends how long you were using and how much you were abusing. Take each day as it comes is the best advice i receive.
